Cosmic Psychos

Blokes You Can Trust DVD

Review by Gary Hill

This is an unusual documentary about an unusual band. It’s told almost as more of a personal story and frankly, after watching it, you’ll feel like these guys are just plain “blokes you can trust.” I’ve never heard of this band before, but they power out some smoking hot old school punk rock. The guys seem just like everyday guys when you listen to them. Like the kind of guy you’d sit at the bar and have a beer with (although they’d call it “a pint at the pub.” It’s almost a contrast to the footage of L7’s Donita Sparks, Eddie Vedder, Mudhoney and the Melvins talking about the power and influence of the group. This band is a very unusual one. This story is a compelling one. It should be mentioned that this isn’t exactly the kind of video you probably want to watch with your kids in the room.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2013  Volume 6 at lulu.com/strangesound.
